Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order’s Gameplay Looks Stellar. EA Redeemed?

Respawn’s new Star Wars game is helping clean EA’s murky reputation with gamers.   While I wasn’t aware of this at all, there was an EA Play event where they showed gameplay from the upcoming Stars Wars game: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. And I’ll admit, it does look like it’s going to be a pretty remarkable game.      When I saw the trailer for the game back…

[Review] Far Cry 5 – The Most Memorable Far Cry Game Yet.

A wild ride of a game marred only by its ending.   If only you knew how much I’ve been dying to play this game since revisiting Far Cry 4 a few months ago. I once reviewed Far Cry 4 and talked about the issues I had with it, but I didn’t expect it to rekindle my love for the franchise again two years after buying it.   While I was…

Nintendo Switch Online Does Not Deserve Its 10 Million Users.

Switch Online continues to be a disappointment.   It was recently reported that the Nintendo Switch Online service is soon going to hit its 10 million users milestone. Right now it has 9.8 million users as of Friday, April 26th 2019.   But as the service’s user base continues to grow, I don’t believe Nintendo deserves this much Switch Online users for the lacklustre offerings of the service.   As…

Filip Miucin Deserves A Second Chance, Although I Remain Skeptical.

Better late than never?   Filip Miucin was one of the biggest gaming controversies of 2018. He wrote a review of the game Dead Cells for IGN to which it would be later discovered that he plagiarised his review from Boomstick Gaming, a youtube content creator.     After this, he would be unsurprisingly fired from IGN. However, it didn’t end there.   The gaming community would then later find…

Respawn Scrapping Titanfall 3 For Apex Legends Upsets Me.

“The world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not – this is what we’re making”,- Lead Producer, Drew McCoy.  As someone who was highly anticipating Titanfall 3, I can’t help but feel upset when I woke up to the news that Respawn Entertainment isn’t just not making Titanfall 3, but they’re releasing a new battle royale game called Apex Legends. [Source] I don’t really have anything personal against battle…

VN Reviews: “Juniper’s Knot” and “Doki Doki Literature Club”.

Juniper’s Knot NO! PLEASE DON’T END! Oh god, this actually made me cry. Juniper’s Knot was so emotional that I was pleading that it won’t end at its climax. I can’t remember the last time anything has made me so overwhelmingly happy and sad at the same time. It almost hurt my heart when the credits started to roll. The artwork of Juniper’s Knot is phenomenal! It’s an exquisite painting…

Game Reviews: “AER: Memories of Old”, and “Skyborn”.

AER: Memories of Old My Relaxation Game. You play as Auk, a girl who can transform into a bird and fly through the skies. I just adore how relaxing and peaceful this is, and the music compliments the calming nature of flying through the skies. As the art style is very unique and colourful, it only makes the game feel much more like a work of art that you can…

VN Reviews: “Lynne”, “The Waters Above: Prelude”, and “The Average Everyday Adventures of Samantha Browne”.

Lynne It makes me wish I was reading something else. I really love the retro aesthetic Lynne has going for it. The art style really does it justice and makes it appealing to look at. The music also plays on your nostalgia. It’s not great by any means, but good nonetheless. But unfortunately that’s where the positives end. The writing of the visual novel feels really drawn out and rarely…

VN Reviews: “Blossoms Bloom Brightest”, “HuniePop”, and “Sakura Angels”.

Blossoms Bloom Brightest I’m not sure what to think. The story/writing of the visual novel is pretty average. Not bad, but not good either. If I had to find a word for it, I would say that it was just “fine”. Three girls end up on a spaceship and must now spend their lives together. You learn about them more as you progress the story, but it also doesn’t really…
